From start to finish the service offered & delivered by FOCUS was superb.

My surgeon David Allamby & his team looked after me so well.  I can't fault it at all.   

I'd certainly recommend FOCUS  without hesitation.

Thank you for everything!

Absolutely amazing! One of the reasons why I decided to have laser eye surgery is to make my mornings much happier without the hassle of putting my contact lenses in. I was always guilty for wearing my contacts for hours and hours to the point where my eyes would get so dry. A few friends of mine had laser eye surgery at Focus and highly recommended it.

I can't fault my experience. From consultation right through to the surgery and follow up appointments, the staff gave me a really nice personal experience which made me feeling very comfortable every time I went in. Surgery happened painlessly and quickly.

It's such an amazing feeling waking up in the morning with what seems to be HD vision. Thank you so much Focus!!!

Sarah (daughter): As a mother and daughter who both had very short sight, we felt increasingly limited by what we could do when relying on glasses and contacts. I went first by phoning Focus and getting a meeting organised for the same day - the clinic was of a very high standard and everyone was friendly and professional. I was in no doubt that this was the right decision and the right clinic. Within a few weeks, the operation had been completed by the fantastic Mr. Allamby, and mum's procedure followed shortly after. We were put at ease and guided through the whole process. I would say the process was a little uncomfortable - just because I'd never experienced anything like it. But any pain dissipated quickly and I have never looked back. It's been brilliant.

Denise (mother): It's been exactly a year now since I had the treatment and I still can't believe how wonderful and freeing life is without glasses.
I was a bit wary about having it done at sixty two but the staff assured me people in their seventies have it done.
The procedure was surprisingly completely painless and quick.
I feel very lucky that I had the absolute top man - Mr Allamby- to carry out the procedure.
His team were all so helpful and professional at all times.

After becoming increasingly frustrated at my dependency on glasses to see faces, read documents, instructions on the backs of jars, etc and a sense of panic if I ever left the house without a pair of glasses with me, I looked into the possibility of laser eye surgery. Matters were complicated somewhat when my optician advised me that I had developed both long sightedness, due to ageing, and shortsightedness.

After spending many hours of research, I was fortunate to come across information about blended vision eye surgery which appeared to be a solution for me. This in turn led me to Focus. The many positive testimonials and experience and background of the eye surgeons, especially the fact that Dr Allamby had pioneered the blended vision procedure and treatment, made me feel confident enough to make an appointment.

I have to say that from the first call that I made to Focus, I felt that I was in a 'safe pair of hands'. The staff at Focus work as a coherent, reassuring, friendly and highly competent team. They are just lovely to deal with and put you at ease straightaway. I was particularly impressed that they ensured I knew that if they deemed me unsuitable for the treatment, then they would let me know and they are extremely thorough with the tests they undertake. Even after I knew I could undertake the treatment, there was no pressure and they encouraged me to have a good think about what I wanted to do, fully understanding that it was a big decision for me.

The treatment itself is not unpleasant and very quick but is not like a trip to a salon! This is a serious procedure which is why I would not have entrusted my eyes to a high street provider. Focus has invested in the latest and most up to date lasers which was also reassuring. Everyone at Focus on the day of my treatment went out of their way to ensure my comfort. They really look after you and keep you informed along each step of the way and I can honestly say that the service I received was superb.

As for the results, well, I was genuinely surprised and shocked at how I could see the faces of people around me immediately after the procedure. I could also read close up immediately and I had no pain. It is now 1 week later as I write this and I am absolutely delighted with the result and I still have further improvement to come. Yes, your eyes will feel and be drier than normal for a while and you do need to follow the after care advice to the letter. However, a small price to pay for such a positive change to your life. For me this was a great decision. The best decision I made though was choosing Focus. I feel that I can now connect with people and clients better and I have control back in my life. It's made a massive difference for me. Thank you Focus!

Jane & Patrick / Blended Vision, August 12th 2014

After becoming irritated by my worsening eyesight and ever increasing dependency on reading glasses, I began to research the options. Blended Vision seemed to me to be the best treatment available, though I did feel anxious about the procedure, particularly as I did not personally know anyone who’d taken this route.

It felt especially important therefore to find the best clinic with the most experienced surgeons, and that is how, after many hours, days and weeks of reading everything I could find, I ended up making an appointment at Focus. By this time, my husband had become interested in my findings and decided that he’d like to come along too.

From the moment we arrived at the clinic, we were overwhelmed by the professional, attentive and friendly manner of the staff. They felt like a cohesive team who delight in achieving great results. We felt that the preliminary examinations were so thorough and that we were in very safe hands.

On the day of the procedure, we were again treated spectacularly well, and although I felt a little nervous, the staff eased those nerves. There was some very minor discomfort for an hour or two after the treatment, but by the evening, my husband and I were laughing happily as we sat reading our menus in a restaurant… without glasses!

For the first month or so I did find that by the end of the day my eyes felt really tired, and I did get some dryness.

It is now about 3 months since then, and my sight is superb. I can read, text, write, type and see near and far. My husband has had a similar success.

We’re both so grateful to Focus and would not hesitate for a moment in recommending the clinic and this procedure to others.

Fiona / Z-LASIK, August 6th 2014

During the initial consultation I was advised about the treatment and what it would involve. After some tests it wasn't clear whether I would be suitable for the treatment and after a year of further eye
checks with my opticians and hospital I was given the all clear.

I went back to FOCUS and was delighted to be able to have the treatment, everyone at clinic is helpful, friendly and reassuring. I felt totally in the best care and have had excellent results after the treatment. I had been wearing glasses for 30 years and to be able to not need them or contact lenses is quite life changing and has given me back a lot of confidence.

I would definitely recommend having the treatment and thanks to all the team at the clinic!

Arthur / Z-LASIK, July 29th 2014

It is now six months after my Z-Lasik treatment at Focus and I went from -8.00 to better than 20/20 vision. The surgery has changed myself completely and I consider it one of the best investments I have made in myself!

The staff at Focus have been very friendly and professional every step of the way. The fact that Focus is an independent clinic means that the service feel very personal and that you see the same people throughout the consultation, surgery and aftercare.

The staff took a lot of time to explain the details of the procedure and answer all my questions. I also found it important that they were very honest about the expected results and potential side effects. In my case the consultation showed that my cornea was thinner than most people's and that re-treatment might not be possible if there was still a slight under-correction after the first treatment. I really appreciated that this was mentioned and I am not sure if every clinic would have communicated this prior to the procedure.

The treatment itself is a bit uncomfortable, but not painful at all. The discomfort comes from the pressure that is put on your eye whilst the flap is created. The good thing is that this part is over in a matter of seconds. In the surgery room I felt in very safe hands with David Allamby and his team. They were very reassuring and explained what they were doing at all times.

All in all, I would highly recommend Focus to anyone considering eye laser treatment. You may be able to find cheaper treatment elsewhere, but in the end you get what you pay for. With Focus you get personal treatment from the best people in their field. Personally, I would not settle for less when it comes to my eyes.

Andreas / Z-LASIK, June 26th 2014

In one word, "brilliant!"

Definitely recommend Focus to family and friends. Very professional from stage 1 to finish. Also top surgeons, that know what they are doing when it comes to laser eye surgery.

If in doubt, don't be, visit FOCUS!

Rich / Z-LASEK, June 17th 2014

Good vision is required for the work that I do and my eyes did not take well to contact lenses. A friend of mine recommended FOCUS, he said how great the team was and how they put your needs first and take great care of you.

I booked a consultation and was thoroughly impressed from the moment I arrived, the checks they carried out were detailed not just practically involving my eyes but in identifying my lifestyle needs, as a result of this due to the activities I undertake I was advised that LASEK would be best suited. Everything was fully explained to me from the procedure to the aftercare, what to expect on the day of surgery right up to the 12 month check up afterwards.

No decision was asked of me during consultation I was advised to think over what had been discussed and they would contact me in a couple of days after I had time to think to ensure I was not pressurised into making any decision.

The day of surgery I was naturally nervous, however the team were very professional and caring and put me at ease they explained to me and my partner what drops to take and when to take them and made sure I was happy with the information I had received. The whole procedure itself lasted less than than ten minutes and the time the laser was in contact with my eye was only seconds.

I was advised for the first few days I would feel discomfort prior to returning on the third day for the contact lens being removed. I did not feel any pain during the recovery phase as anticipated and when I had the lens removed on the third day my eye had healed over.

Within a week my vision was fantastic I could read number plates on cars and street signs at distance. The team at FOCUS continued with their excellent care on my follow up checks even to this day 12 months after surgery. My vision is perfect which makes work and life  so much easier.

I would thoroughly recommend FOCUS to anyone, if you are considering laser eye treatment you will find out everything you need to know at consultation.

Franca / Z-LASIK

I was recommended by a friend who had also had her eyes corrected through Focus, although I was still very nervous about making the decision after wearing glasses and contact lenses for over 30 Years,  after my consultation I was very satisfied  with the checks and friendly staff and therefore took the option to have my short sighted corrected.

The Team at Focus are excellent from Emma who took me through all the process to Lisa on reception who is always smiling and helpful on all my check ups to Hannah who took me through with her colleague and David Allamby who conducted the procedure.

I am very pleased with the First class service that you have provided, to a great team!
I would highly recommend Focus to any of my friends and colleagues as right from the start to the aftercare you are have been fantastic.
